The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen (pronounced loh-zen) assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines.

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen (pronounced loh-zen) assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. To achieve this, Ernst dramatically reduced his crop size and stopped all chemical fertilization, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilizers.

A 2005 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Beerenauslese represents this yearb_Ts only Loosen B.A. Confectionary aromas of strawberry and vanilla icing suggest Eiswein. In the mouth this is incredibly rich with an oily nearly-buttery texture and flavors that bespeak a true super-concentrate of tiny ennobled berries. Enveloping honey and icing-like sweetness dominate the finish for now but distinct strawberry jam butter cream and salt elements are present and the sheer length breadth and richness on exhibit here hold the promise of something sensational at points in time 15 to 30 years from now.
